Police: 5 dead in shooting in Phoenix-area home

GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) - Police in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert say a man shot and killed four people, including a toddler, before killing himself.

Gilbert police Lt. John Lyle told The Arizona Republic that authorities aren't looking for a suspect in Wednesday afternoon's shooting at a home. Police didn't immediately return calls from The Associated Press.

Police say the man was armed with several firearms, and officers recovered two handguns and a shotgun.

The gunman's identity and motives aren't known.

Gilbert police Sgt. Bill Balafas says the genders and ages of the victims aren't known either, except for the toddler, a girl between 1 and 2 years old.

The shootings occurred after 1 p.m. Witnesses say a SWAT team sealed off part of the area and investigators told residents to remain indoors.
